:balloon:Hello! Welcome to the forum!

Your code is very close to passing, but the color hex code has an error. It should look like this:

Does this help?
Keep up the good progress!

Happy Coding! :slightly_smiling_face:


Hi @Grim0no and @ios-man!
You responses are both helpful and your correct about the error but you should change your reply so that whilst they provide assistance to complete the step it shouldn’t include the actual answer.
According to the FCC rules it is like this so that the user will have a chance to try and figure it out on there own without getting a direct answer.
Don’t worry about it most of us have been there and done that until learning the rules.
So continue providing your great assistance and edit your replies before @Cody_Biggs does :smile:!


Point taken @anon86258595, but I think it could be argued that a less explicity indication would be of little value here. @Yve89 clearly understands the overall concept and syntax, and simply forgot one letter in the color code - something we have all done.

Your intention is absolutely understood, and I am certain that @Yve89 will have compared her code with that provided in earnest. Hence, she will have found her error and updated her code.

We all know what little value copy and pasting code holds, especially in the context of freeCodeCamp, where the motivation to learn comes from within. It could be safe to say, that anyone cheating here, is really cheating themselves.

Happy coding!


I have edited your reply and removed the solution.
Do not provide solutions directly. provide hints and references.


Missed my chance. As steph said, we dont allow solutions to be posted even if the OP has 99.99% of the solution. People will take any chance to copy and paste to move on. To eliminate that, any solution provided will be removed when mods see it.


Deleted because I posted the solution and I was not able to edit it.
